KOTTAYAM: P C George MLA has demanded a CBI inquiry into the death of tribal youth Madhu. “Strict action should be initiated against those involved in the heinous crime. Forest Officer Vinod, who had shown Madhu to the gang inside the forest, should be arrested after being booked for charges of murder. Those who propagated the videos of the lynching also should be brought before the law”, George told reporters here on Saturday.  George said the mentally challenged youth had stolen only rice and chillies.

“The rulers who are responsible for the poverty of tribal people are the real culprits here. As Khalifa Umer said the hands of the rulers who put people in starvation should be chopped off,” he said.A sum of `25 lakh should be allotted to the family of Madhu as compensation, George said. “The body of Madhu was brought to Thrissur from Palakkad, so as to enable Tribal Welfare Minister A K Balan, who is attending the ongoing CPM state conference, pay homage. This is highly deplorable. The Chief Minister and his colleagues should visit Attappadi”, he said.
